What types of NACCAP memberships are available?
NACCAP offers three different types of memberships …. Institutional - Undergraduate/Graduate/Seminary, Institutional - High School and Associate memberships - for individuals seeking membership.
Membership will be limited to those institutions who meet the following criteria:
Colleges or high schools wishing to apply for membership may complete our online application. The application asks for institutional affirmation of and adherence to the membership criteria, and requires the signatures of the applying institution's Chief Enrollment Officer or Guidance Counselor. The completed application must include a link to the current college catalog and/or some other certification of accreditation (this documentation can be uploaded in the online application).
Each prospective member must obtain recommendations from two NACCAP member institutions. Each sponsoring member institution and individual of that member institution must be in membership status for at least three years.
Once the Institutional Membership Application has been submitted to the Membership Services Coordinator and all required recommendations have been received, the file will be submitted to the Governance Committee for review. Once approved by the Governance Committee, the files will be forwarded to the Board of Directors for final approval. A 3/4 vote of the Board of Directors is required for membership.
What is an associate membership ?
Associate memberships are open to individuals who affirm the NACCAP Principles of Good Practice and are personally committed to the ideals expressed in the NACCAP Doctrinal Statement. This type of membership is available to individuals who are not associated with an eligible NACCAP institution. Associate membership would be an ideal fit for a vendor or individual wishing to be connected to NACCAP. An Associate member is a non-voting member and cannot serve on the NACCAP Board of Directors. Associate members receive limited member benefits. They are not eligible for participation in or receiving the results of the enrollment surveys or participation in the fairs. Online applications will be received by the NACCAP Coordinator of Member Services and will be recommended to the Board of Directors, where a 2/3 vote is required for approval. Anyone working at an educational institution, whether or not that institution is a NACCAP member, may apply to be an Associate Member.How do I maintain my membership?
Each NACCAP member must annually renew its membership by completing the Membership Renewal process on the NACCAP website. This process will indicate the member's continued acceptance of and adherence to the membership criteria. As a form of renewal, the name of the institution’s Chief Enrollment Officer or Guidance Counselor is required. Failure to complete the renewal process by the date set by the Board of Directors will result in the member college being placed in an inactive membership status.
Each member college shall pay annual dues of an amount stipulated by the Coalition. Failure to pay dues by the date set by the Board of Directors will result in the member college being placed in an inactive membership status for a maximum period of two years. Subsequent membership will require full application.
Failure to adhere to the membership criteria of the organization may result in termination of membership. Removal of a college requires a vote of the Board of Directors. If this action occurs, the membership of the college in question is suspended until the next scheduled business meeting of the Coalition at which time a majority vote by members present to ratify the earlier action of the Board of Directors will remove the college from association membership. Those schools whose memberships have been terminated by Coalition action may apply for reinstatement after two years.
All decisions regarding termination of membership may be appealed in writing to the Board of Directors. The appeal must be received thirty days prior to the next regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting.
